The best CD rates now
Old Point National Bank, a regional bank serving customers across the state of Virginia, is now offering customers a 6.02% APY on a 6-month CD special.
The special offer requires a minimum deposit of $500. As is the case with most other CDs, Old Point CD investors will be locked in at this 6.02% APY until the end of their 6-month term. Afterwards, the CD can be cashed out or renewed at whatever rate Old Point is offering at that time.
While the guaranteed return with CDs is safe and attractive for savers, the drawback to CDs is that they typically penalize customers for prematurely accessing the funds, making them more rigid than a savings account. But the higher average returns than typical savings accounts often make for a fair tradeoff.
Before you get too excited about scoring a high return with this CD, take note that Old Point's CD specials must be opened in person at one of its many eastern Virginia branches.
If you don't live in Virginia or anywhere near an Old Point branch, many other banks are offering CDs with competitive APYs that are available online. Here are some of the best CD rates right now:
